Generally the materials are very high quality and it is very well made. But that's where the good points ended for me. The fabric I found too light. I was hoping for something a bit warmer and more substantial. I felt noticeably cold in these pants on a chilly early winter day. Then there's the fit. The biggest problem is that the crotch hangs far too low. Then there's the strange transition as you move down the leg. The fit is nice and roomy in the thighs. Then it gets quite tight in the knees; and, then gets loose again in the ankles. The tightness in the knees prevented me from being able to do any kind of high-step movements. And the looseness in the ankles just meant that I had extra fabric flapping around as I walked. And why add zippers at the ankles on these pants? They do not allow me to pull the pants on while wearing footwear. I just don't get it. Fix the crotch problem, then taper the fit down gradually from the thighs to the knees and to the ankles. Lose the zips. Then you'd have a nice pair of pants for hiking/running in Spring/Fall. Choose a more substantial, warmer fabric (perhaps with a brushed interior) and you'd have a real winner even for Winter pursuits.
